Ouverture des Serres Royales de Laeken (ANNULE)

Description

If you live in Brussels and you've never visited the Royal Greenhouses in Laeken, you are missing a great opportunity to see something that exemplifies the word unique. Only open three weeks a year, the greenhouses combine the spectacular architecture of Alphonse Balat (Victor Horta’s teacher and mentor), who built them in 1873, with a multitude of plants, some specimens dating back to the opening of the greenhouses, and views across the royal domain including, if you are visiting at dusk, the Japanese Tower glowing in the distance like a giant lantern. It’s probably the only place where you will get to see espaliered geraniums. At the centre of the complex, Queen Elisabeth's sculpture studio is an art deco marvel. The tour circuit takes you into the greenhouses and outside the greenhouses so you can appreciate the plants and statuary indoors and the remarkable monumental architecture and the grounds of the Royal Domain outdoors. Open during the day and the evening, but my recommendation is to go at dusk for an especially magical experience.
